Today I am trying my hand at making my own yogurt and if all goes well I will be splitting the batch with my neighbour (who my husband has affectionately nicknamed "Hippy"). And then she will buy the supplies to make the next batch. Like a mini yogurt co-op. "Hippy" and her son also share the investment, work and bounty of the veggie garden. It's fun!
I'm using a tutorial found on
A Year of Slow CookingI don't usually buy organic milk, unfortunately. It costs $6.60 for 2L, compared to $3 for local non-organic milk. I haven't yet been able to justify this added expense. But if this yogurt recipe works, even with the more expensive milk it will still be a money saver for the amount it makes.
All told, the recipe is supposed to take around 14 hours. So I've started today, about an hour ago.
